    First time Disney trip in July. We have the 2 quick service meal plan. What are some of the better/more upscale options for quick service? Any advice for first timers would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Monica,

    There are so many wonderful quick service options at Walt Disney World.  Typically these restaurants are not upscale, but the food is very good.  Here are a few of my favorites:

    Magic Kingdom:  Columbia Harbour House in Liberty Square and Tortuga Tavern in Adventureland

    Epcot:  Sommerfest in the Germany Pavilion and Sunshine Season Food Fair in the Land Pavilion

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:  Min & Bill's Dockside Diner

    Disney's Animal Kingdom:  Flame Tree BBQ

    Downtown Disney:  Earl of Sandwich and Wolfgang Puck Express

    Resorts:  Pepper Market at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort, Roaring Fork at Disney's Wilderness Lodge, and Captain Cook's at Disney's Polynesian Resort

    It makes me hungry just thinking about this list!  If you want to enjoy your meals without having to stand in longer lines to order your food, I highly recommend eating at off-peak times.  For instance, we always try to have lunch around 11:30 am because most folks are not thinking about lunch that early.  Then we don't wait in line to order and can basically have our choice of tables.

    Have an amazing time on your July vacation!
